You are invited to the farm this summer!

Through a series of drive yourself twilight farm tours organized by Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension; Seneca County Farm Bureau and Seneca County Soil and Water Conservation District and co-sponsored by the Seneca County Agriculture Enhancement Board with local farms, participants will have a firsthand look at different agricultural enterprises.

The monthly evening tours will provide an opportunity to view and discuss conservation practices adopted by the farms- dairy, vineyard and cash grains- to benefit water quality and soil conservation, ask questions about the practices and technology used by the farm, as well as discuss the challenges and opportunities farmers face today.

Agriculture has evolved over time and through the adoption of new technologies, equipment and management practices farms have become able to improve food quality, environmental conservation, animal welfare and worker safety. Just as their forefathers did, today’s farmers value the land, the water and animals they care for in addition to striving to be good stewards to all resources including the air we breathe.
